Campaign office footage has emerged, showing the early moments of the Anthony Weiner texting scandal. Weiner was trying to run a campaign, while his wife, Huma Abedin, was working diligently for Hillary Clinton.
In the first video, watch for Huma Abedin’s reaction to confirmation that her husband had been sexting with younger girls. Many believe her to be emotionless as she asked questions like, “What is your press statement going to be?” Does she seem cold to you? Anthony Weiner is obviously anxious and upset while trying to keep it together.
In this second video, Huma seems a little more upset, even sad, as she discusses the public relations element of the emerging scandal. She says that she does not know what to tell the press, as she does not have any “prep.” Anthony Weiner assures her that he will provide her with prep in the car.
Pay close attention to the moment where Huma leans back in her chair to look over Weiner’s shoulder at his phone. Her reaction tells the tale that America, and the world, was about to learn:
Who would have ever imagined that the FBI and the Department of Justice would go on to ignore the crimes of Hillary Clinton, only to discover a treasure trove of evidence on Anthony Weiner’s laptop?
Though the FBI made a few politically motivated statements as the Election of 2016 wound down, it is unlikely that this investigation is over.
Now that Hillary has lost, it is almost certain that a Donald Trump Administration, and a new Department of Justice, will get to the bottom of this.
Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin likely took down the Clintons, and perhaps a global conglomerate with them.
Truth is stranger than fiction.
